Season's Inspiration: Sign-up Now for Daily USD Advent Calendar Content

Advent marks the beginning of the liturgical calendar for the Roman Catholic Church. It is observed over the four weeks preceding Christmas and derives from the Latin adventus, which means “arrival.” It is a Christian tradition intended to help us prepare for the coming of Christ into the world.

The season of Advent is about waiting, praying and fasting in preparation for Christ to come as the light of the world. Its four weeks connect to four main themes: hope, peace, joy and love.

The University of San Diego invites you to join us in observing the special season leading up to Christmas through the USD Advent Calendar.

Beginning today, Nov. 29, a digital calendar will feature a daily piece of content -- festive songs, spiritual reflections and fun tidbits from USD community members -- to help you get in the spirit and enter more deeply into the season!

We invite you to sign up to receive daily Advent emails, which will contain a link to the digital Advent Calendar. You can sign up here:

Students, parents, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of the university are all welcome. The daily emails are sent from Sunday, Nov. 29-Thursday, Dec. 24, 2020.
